Here is the necromancer book that I used to win at the tournament at the Games Keep in West Chester PA on January 25th.  Please let me know what you think and if  you see any ways to improve it.  Thanks!

If you want to read up on my tournament report, click here!

Libro Mortuos (3)
Meditation Amulet (2)
Cloak of Shadows (2)
Eagleclaw Boots (2)
Dragonscale Hauberk (2)

Idol of Pestilence (2)
Poison Gas Cloud x 2 (8 )

Creatures
Skeletal Knight x 2 (6)
Mort (4)
Malacoda (4)
Grey Wraith (3)
Skeletal Minion (1)

Skeletal Archer (3)

Enchantments
Agony (1)
Ghoul Rot x 2 (4)
Decoy (1)
Poisoned Blood (1)
Magebane x 2 (2)
Maim Wings x 2 (2)

Force Crush (6)

Incantations

Reassemble x 3 (3)
Unholy Resurgence (2)
Seeking Dispel (2)
Drain Soul (4)
Power Strike (1)

Attacks
Hurl Boulder (4)
Flameblast (2)

The basic idea behind the book is to force my opponent to attack me.  I do this by summoning an Idol of Pestilence and a Deathlock.  I spam out a bunch of skeletons and walls to defend the two conjurations and sling curses at the opposing mage.  Reassembles, Unholy Resurgence and Mort keep the skeletons in the fight for as long as possible.  I never really get to hit for big damage, but instead gradually chip away at the opposing mage's life points over time.

General Discussion / Arcane Wonders on BoardGameLinks.com
« on: January 23, 2014, 02:10:57 PM »
Hi everyone. I wanted to point out that I recently submitted Arcane Wonders to the publishers list over on BoardGameLinks.  BoardGameLinks is a website that compiles links to various boardgame related sites.  They are currently working on regrouping, classifying and ranking the best board game sites on the web. Publisher sites and online store sites are in specific sections.  Currently, Arcane Wonders is ranked 152 on the publishers list with only 7 likes.  We can do better than that!  Please take a moment and click this link and give Arcane Wonders (and any of your other favorite publishers and websites) a thumbs up.  You don't have to sign up for anything or even log in.  Thanks!

When: Saturday January 25th (12pm sign-up; 12:30 slinging spells)
 
Entrance fee: $5 which will go toward prizes in the form of store credit
 
What to bring: Your 120 point spell book – NO UNRELEASED PROMO CARDS ALLOWED.  Also, please bring your copy of the game as we will need boards, markers, dice, etc. to play.

Game Points Awarded as follows:
 
5 Points                Defeat the enemy mage.

0 Points                Loss
 
Tournament Points and Determining a Winner
 
Add up the total number of points, the player with the most wins. In the event of a tie, look at strength of schedule i.e. average the total number of points earned by each players’ opponents. The player whose opponents have the greatest number of points is the winner.
 
Promo cards will be available for all participants!  Hopefully the latest promo kit will be available by then but if not, the store has some older kits available.
 
Please feel free to leave any comments, concerns, suggestions or to ask any questions below.  I really want this to be a fun and friendly event and I am open to your ideas to make it better.

Please post below if you are planning on attending so I can get a rough idea of how many players will be attending.  Hope to see you there!

After the success of our first two Mage Wars meet-ups, I think it is time to try my hand at running a tournament.  Here are the details (subject to change):
 
Where: The Games Keep – 929 South High Street, West Chester, PA 19382 (484) 905-5533
 
When: Saturday November 23rd (12pm sign-up; 12:30 slinging spells)
 
Entrance fee: $5 which will go toward prizes in the form of store credit
 
What to bring: Your 120 point spell book – NO UNRELEASED PROMO CARDS ALLOWED.  Also, please bring your copy of the game as we will need boards, markers, dice, etc. to play.
 
Format: We will play a Swiss style format. Rounds will last 90 minutes.
 
Tiebreaker: We will use the most damage inflicted as our tiebreaker method for games that go to time.  Players must record all the damage they inflict on the opposing mage.  Whoever has inflicted the most damage when time is called will be the winner.
 
Promo cards from the Unholy Tides Organized Play Kit will be available for all participants!
 
I have run several tournaments in the past, but this will be my first attempt at running one for Mage Wars.  Please feel free to leave any comments, concerns, suggestions or to ask any questions below.  I really want this to be a great event so I am open to your ideas.

There will be another Mage Wars get together at the Games Keep in West Chester PA on Saturday September 28th starting at 1pm. This is going to be another casual get together to meet up and play. So bring your spellbooks and a good attitude and come on out and join us. Both newbies and old pros are welcome. I am still waiting to get this group off of the ground before trying to organize tournaments along with these general meet-ups. Please let me know if you are planning on attending, thinking about attending or if you have any questions. Thanks!

League / Tournament Play / Trying to form a group in South Eastern PA
« on: April 30, 2013, 09:04:52 PM »
My friend and I are trying to form a Mage Wars group/league in South Eastern PA. We are going to hold our first get together at The Games Keep in West Chester PA on Saturday May 25th starting at 12pm. This first gathering will be a casual event to meet other local players and have a few friendly games. So grab your copy of Mage Wars and come out and join us!

Please let me know if you are planning on making it out on the 25th by posting below so we can make sure we have enough space. Any questions you might have can also go below. If you can’t attend May 25th but are still interested in playing Mage Wars with us, let me know so we can figure out how many interested players there are in the area and figure out the best days to run future events. Thanks and I look forward to seeing some new faces in the arena!
